SONEL’S BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE: UPWARD

BLACK AND WHITE FIREWORKS

Look up in the sky,

What do you see?

A burst of fireworks

Raining downward on me.

🙂 🙂 🙂

“Light, diffused, piercing the dark fireworks, crescendo turning the night to day explosive, glorious.  So is God’s love manifested in the Son’s rising Champion over sin, death”

I bought my first DSLR camera a couple of years ago and didn’t quite know how to use it.  I was experimenting with everything.  Here is my first experiment with shooting fireworks.  I wasn’t really happy with the outcome of the photos in color, so when Sonel’s black and white challenge upward came along, I decided to convert my color firework shots to black and white to see if they looked better.  What do you think?
